Technology Overview

United States Army

Provide FORSCOM with a Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) and Six-Sigma capability by integrating requirements and processes into the ARFORGEN predictive synchronization effort. The Army Campaign Plan mandates implementation of ARFORGEN. The Commander, FORSCOM resourced the exploration of a predictive synchronization capability to address ARFORGEN in CY2004. FORSCOM executed a Proof of Principle (POP) using COTS manufacturing software. This software was provided by ProModel Corporation. The POP was successful and the FORSCOM commander allocated additional funds in CY2005 to develop a prototype ARFORGEN Synchronization Tool (AST) for evaluation. ProModel competed in an open solicitation and was awarded the contract to fully develop the AST in January 2006. FORSCOM, Executive agent for ARFORGEN is presently funding all development. The ARFORGEN synchronization effort is progressing on schedule and has the following capabilities: · View Army forces in force pools and Expeditionary Force packages · Depicts deployable forces from all Army components · Compares available forces to requirements and determine shortfalls · Aligns forces in hierarchal structures The following capabilities are currently scheduled for delivery in October 2007: · Integrate unit sourcing capabilities in AST · Integration of training templates and Combat Training Center resources The following capabilities are currently scheduled for delivery in March 2007: · Depict the impact of all Equipping events and strategies · Ability to schedule unit entities through various prioritized Training requirements and strategies · AcapabilityisdevelopedandprovidedtohandleanddepictthelifecycleManningforofficers,enlistedand warrantofficerswithanalysiscapabilitiesontheirentitylevelattributes · A capability is developed and provided to apply Resourcing criteria to predict the impact on various events




1. Predict POM material readiness funding through visibility of mission requirements and Force Management recommendations or actions 2. Predict funding for future maintenance and sustainment requirements that are generated by combatant commander mission requirements 3. Synchronize maintenance, sustainment, and recapitalization efforts within all components 4. Provide real-time visibility of Combat Support and Combat Service Support units and assist in developing sourcing recommendations and solutions 5. Synchronization distribution of new or mission essential equipment to prioritized units 6. Provide "What-if" analysis within a transforming environment that can validate or deny Course of Action analysis and optimize processes by minimizing costs or maximizing system or unit availability 7. Evaluate and execute Lean and Six-Sigma CPI initiatives
